What Is It?

The Yamaha XV950 Racer is an A2 licence friendly cruiser with a dash of cafe racer style thrown in and is powered by an air-cooled 942cc 60° V-Twin engine, producing 51bhp at 5,500rpm and maximum torque at just 3,000rpm.

The engine, from the XVS950 Midnight Star, is a stressed member of the frame and the air intake is on the right side of the engine adding to the retro looks.
